The New Jersey State AFL-CIO applauds IBEW Local 94 on its recent organizing victory at Linden Cogen, and we are proud to welcome 39 new members to our union family. As Local 94 reports, this campaign took a lot of organizing from both within the union and within the workplace. We are proud to recognize the hard work of all parties involved in securing this victory.
Despite the political attacks, when workers resolve to come together for a common purpose, there is nothing that can prevent us from exercising our collective voice. In addition to this victory, IBEW 94 has been hard at work all year. A contract was successfully ratified for 2 Line Clearance Tree Trimmers. This is a 3-year agreement that provides a 3.3% increase for each year of the agreement.
Local 94 is continuing to work hard for all of the members of Local 94 to make sure that workers get fair contracts and that jobs are protected. Once again, we recognize Local 94 for its leadership and solidarity. As we know, every local’s success strengthens our movement as a whole.
